[arin-ppml] Post-Meeting Revision of 2010-14

Chris,

It looks to me like this text would still require each and every dynamically
assigned residential block to be SWIPped.  I know we talked about several
possible solutions to this at the meeting: do you think it would be useful
to do something like change the first sentence of 6.5.5.1 to read "Each
static IPv6 assignment" instead of "Each IPv6 assignment"?

> 5) Specifically define the term "residential customer."

>
> #Expanded Rational:
> 1) This policy restructures the reassignment and registration sections
> of the IPv4 and IPv6 policies.
> a) The IPv4 section is renamed "registration."
> b) The IPv4 policy is shortened and rewritten for clarity.
> c) The IPv6 policy is totally rewritten in a format that matches the
> IPv4 policy.
> * These structural changes are meant to make it easier to compare the
> two sections. I believe that having the IPv6 and IPv4 policies written
> in completely different formats and structures (as they are in many
> cases now) confuses the issues and makes it very hard to understand
> what is different and what is the same across the two sections.
> Bringing them into a similar format should help ease the migration to
> IPv6 as folks can quickly and easily understand the differences and
> the similarities.
> d) The IPv6 policy is altered from a /56 minimum needing to be
> registered to a /64. A /64 is a single IPv6 subnet where as a /56
> contains many subnets (that should all be recorded in the WHOIS
> directory if handed out to other organizations).
>
> 2) This policy adds a definition of "organizational information" which
> is used in the existing policy but not currently defined anywhere in
> the NRPM.
> a) The definition states that legal name and physical address are
> required for client organizations.
> b) The definition states that POCs are required but can be designated
> by the client organization - it spells out that the client org can
> choose to use their upstream as a POC.
> c) The definition requires that each POC have a valid email address
> and phone number.
>
> 3) This policy takes the privileges granted specifically to IPv4 cable
> operators in section 4.2.6. "Cable Address Space Policy" and grants
> them to all ISPs who serve residential areas.
> a) It allows all ISPs with residential coverage to
> register/swip/rwhois an entire market area.
> b) It retains the existing residential customer privacy policy for all
> customers with larger IP blocks.
> * This change removes the need for any ISP to enter residential
> customers into whois at all.
>
> 4) This policy also extends the >50% utilization rate, currently
> granted only to IPv4 cable operators, to all ISPs with a residential
> footprint.
> * This change offsets the ability to register/swip/rwhois market
> areas. For all other allocation types, efficient utilization is based
> on SWIPs, not on actual utilization. When an organization is able to
> SWIP an entire market area, this must be checked against actual
> utilization. This policy maintains the current line set at >50%.
> **The 50% mark on the most recent allocation is because you can
> quickly distribute most of your address space across your provisioning
> footprint, leaving nothing left for growth while the lease count of
> the provisioned customers catches up to the blocks allocated. (Dan
> Alexander's words)
>
> 5) Current policy references "residential customers" but there is no
> current definition of residential customers in the NRPM. This has
> reportedly been an on-going problem for ARIN and it’s customers.
>
> 6) Not properly registering reassignment information could be a sign
> of other improper or illicit behavior and should justify a resource
> review (audit) by ARIN when necessary, regardless of when the last
> review took place.
